Reset Registration and Erase Settings

To reset the registration information, shut down the nessusd service first. Next, run the nessuscli fix --reset command. You will be prompted for confirmation.

If you have not shut down the nessusd service, the nessuscli fix --reset command will exit.

# /sbin/service nessusd stop

# /opt/nessus/sbin/nessuscli fix --reset

Resetting Nessus configuration will permanently erase all your settings and cause Nessus to become unregistered.

Do you want to proceed? (y/n) [n]: y
